Merger Rejected For Law School in Indiana

Push for GRE Continues

Another law school is continuing to push towards embracing the GRE for acceptance.
The University of Hawai’i’s William S. Richardson School of Law announced that it will be extending its program of accepting the GRE in lieu of the LSAT for another year, Above The Law reports.
“We have been able to attract very high caliber graduate school students with rich backgrounds in STEM and social sciences by accepting GRE,” Hawaii Law Professor Hazel Beh says in a statement. “These applicants may have been reluctant to take the LSAT, as preparation for yet another entrance exam may distract them from important work they are already doing in other graduate programs.”
Last year, the law school introduced the pilot program that changed its admission policy to officially allow the school to accept GRE scores for admission. The program, according to the law school, is part of an effort to broaden access to legal education. It has proven successful so far as the school has already admitted five students using the GRE.
“As always, a candidate’s test numbers and GPAs are only a part of our assessment,” Professor Calvin Pang says in a statement. “Still, the numbers are important in measuring a candidate’s academic readiness. Because we were feeling our way toward meshing the GRE scores into our traditional approach, we were looking for good, solid scores. I’m confident that those we admitted using GRE scores are capable students with the right personal attributes.”
